Summary: As the Slayer, Buffy Summers has helped a lot of people in her twenty years.  But there's one person she's never gotten to help:  Buffy Summers.  When she leapt into the portal that Glory forced open, any chance to help any Buffy anywhere went with her.  Or did it?
Now the lead ambassador to the Powers that Be is playing "Let's Make a Deal" with her afterlife and the leaps have only just begun.  Where will she leap to next - and will it be to heaven?  Or will the next leap be her leap back home?  (With apologies to one of my favorite shows next to Buffy and Angel, "Quantum Leap.")

Summary: For a challenge by pfeifferpack
Just after 'Lovers' Walk.'  Mayors men capture Spike and through the use of drugs and magic put him in a feral state. Demon is in full charge.  Buffy is injured and captured by the mayor's goons and locked in (combination of regular locks and magic) with Spike with the expectation that Spike will kill, possibly after torture, the Slayer.
Instead Spike (who, demon included, is already in love with Buffy per canon) protects and tends to Buffy...  Buffy figures out that Spike for some reason isn't planning to kill or drain her (or even feed).  Buffy and the non-verbal Spike develop non-hostile relationship and trust as Spike helps Buffy get strong enough to help him find a way to escape.  [Full challenge here.]
Meanwhile, Angel gives up just as he did in 'Prophecy Girl,' assuming Spike will kill Buffy.  Once Giles gets back from his retreat, the trail has gone cold.  By the time Buffy and Spike get free of the Mayor's clutches, everything between them has changed... as has everything Buffy thought she knew about demons.
The incredible banner is by Versheenah, an amazing and generous artist.  Thank you so, so much, with many bravas! and bouquets!

Summary: Enraged by Buffy's treatment of Spike in mid-season six, the goddess of love swoops in to offer succor to a vampire who has always loved too much and a lesson to a Slayer who scorned that love.
For a challenge by pfeifferpack:  I'd like a story where a goddess of love (pick your pantheon) watches Buffy turn her anger and violence upon Spike over and over and she becomes angered that Buffy doesn't value what is in front of her. Unconditional love is rare and Buffy did more than simply reject that love offered to her by Spike...  The goddess decided to have Buffy learn how rare a gift she is trashing in some way up to the writers imagination. You can have the goddess make herself and her intention known or just have Buffy experience whatever lesson will show her the value of Spike's love.  [Full challenge here.]

Summary: Her eyes followed the blood. Summers blood. She counted the drops. Ten. Then it stopped.
If Dawn dies, I’m through. I don’t want to live in a world if these are the choices. Slowly, her head rose up. Their eyes met. Green and amber. A look passed between them then a nod. Her own voice echoed into her mind. I’m counting on you. To avenge her. Us.
He made a promise. Until dusk will swallow them all.

Summary: From a challenge by tempestt
When he was a wee laddie, Rupert Giles found himself in a bit o' trouble.  Come on, we all know 10 year-old Giles would've been a little hellion.  Spike, who's around because he's hunting the slayer Giles's grandmother is assigned to is impressed by Giles's swaggering bravado and helps him out.  In doing so he dubs Giles Lil' Ripper.  A much more fitting name than nancy boy Rupert.
So begins an on-and-off, life long friendship between the two...  When Spike shows up in School Hard Giles immediately recognizes Buffy's description so he sets up a meet.  After finding out why Spike is at the Hellmouth, Giles strikes a deal.  He'll help Spike heal Drusilla if Spike agrees to help his slayer for an indeterminate amount of time.  [Full challenge here.]

She brought Spike back too.
 
 
Let me be very clear, this is not a baby fic, not really;
There will be a baby, but it will not be Buffy's.
This fic deals with abortions and all the awful stuff that goes along with it.

This work was inspired by the amazing Versheenah, whose excellent fic Choices gave me tons to think about and ended up turning in to this story.

From a challenge by Mikkalenko:  Spike is a 'daywalker,' a variety of vampire so rare that the Council doesn't bother to mention them to their Slayers.  Daywalkers get all the perks of vampirism, but none of the drawbacks.  [Full challenge here.]  Very loosely based on the attributes of the comics character Blade.

Summary:  
Inspired by a challenge from knightowl:
 
When Buffy dies at the hands of the Master her Slayer side goes into shock and hides. This makes everyone, even the Council think that she has lost her powers. Her friends and Giles draw away from her so that she can have a 'normal' life and to protect her from everything. Letting Buffy see that all they really liked about her was her Slayer side. Kendra is sent to Sunnydale to replace Buffy and Angel starts to stalk her instead of Buffy, allowing her to see how creepy that is. Buffy becomes depressed and realises that she liked being the Slayer but that everything she thought she knew about her life and her friends was wrong.
 
Enter Spike, who hates Dru a little because the whole Prague thing only happened because Dru finally decided to break up with him just to then let herself be hurt knowing Spike would have to stay and look after her.
 
Spike and Buffy meet, both a little depressed and angry at how their lives are at the moment.
 

 
Or a lot depressed, if you ask me.
 
I like to think of this story as fun, sweet, and effed up all rolled into one angsty teen/vampire romance. So, basically, it's a retelling of S2 with Spike as the male lead. Fun times. biggrin
 
Extra warnings include talks about self-harm (no graphic depictions) and harm to a child (because of course Dawn is always a magnet for trouble). Oh, and the Drug Use warning is only for marijuana.

Summary: A brief exploration in contrasts as Angel gets caught up in the spell from Tabula Rasa along with the others. Very different behaviors from the two vampires in Buffy's life would be very illuminating but would it be enough to make Buffy see that those who've stayed at her side have more to offer than she's allowed them give? Would parts of her broken heart begin to mend even as the rest of her heart is in tatters? Just what lessons could they all learn from what they witness?

Challenge Response
Everything Buffy remembers of Angel is a lie.
 
After the day Buffy and Angel spent together in LA which he took back, Buffy returns home. Spike immediately notices that she has a powerful spell on her and convinces Giles to get it checked out. When the spell is removed, Buffy remembers the day, and that Angel unilaterally decided to undo it. Spike also tosses out that they should remove the domination claim Angel put on her. Once the claim is removed, Buffy realizes that the relationship she remembers having with Angel wasn't at all what happened. He has been lying to her and manipulating her from the beginning, with a heavy dose of the natural magic of vampires helping him along in his deception. And somehow, Spike is the one responsible for freeing her from Angel's power.

“Spike tells Buffy to leave him in Chosen but, this time, she doesn't... and out pop two ghosts in Angel's office nineteen days later. How does Buffy being in W&H as ghost #2 affect AtS season 5? What kind of shenanigans does our ghost duo get up to? ...Angsty, fluffy, smutty (answering the question of if ghosts can touch each other!) - whatever genre you like, so long as it has a happy Spuffy end.”

Probably heading into the territory of melancholic despair at some stage, be warned. But happy ending guaranteed! It's in the challenge requirements after all ;)

Riley was the kind of guy who comes along once in a lifetime? Yeah, right.
Naked push-ups, anyone?
In my opinion, there was one single instance of Xander being observant, and that was in S7 when he saw Dawn’s calm acceptance that she wasn’t a Potential after all, and praised her for being ‘extraordinary’.
But, what if what Caleb said was right and Xander really was (or at some point became) ‘The one who sees’? He’s gifted with the subtle super-power to see things as they really are."
